United draw Everton clash

Published 09/03/2009

A heavyweight FA Cup final between Manchester United and Chelsea is still a distinct possibility after both Premier League giants were kept apart in yesterday’s semi-final draw.

Chelsea will face either Arsenal or Hull, who have yet to meet, while United take on Everton.

However, United boss Sir Alex Ferguson can recall the Toffees' last major trophy — their FA Cup win in 1995, when they upset United 1-0 in the final. Everton strik

er Louis Saha, who scored the winner in yesterday's 2-1 quarter-final victory over Middlesbrough, said: "This will be a big test as United are the best team around."

Goals from Carlos Vela, Eduardo and Emmanuel Eboue ensured Arsenal coasted through to the quarter-finals after demolishing Burnley.
